In this folder C:\Users\YOURCOMPNAME\Documents\Paradox Interactive\Crusader Kings II you will find the setting file where you can change the res. This may work for you.

I have searched but nothing that has to do with the screen

you change the resolution in the file to match your native res.

The file is called "settings.txt". The video configuration section looks like this in mine:

graphics= { size= { x=1024 y=768 } refreshRate=0 fullScreen=no shadows=no shadowSize=2048 multi_sampling=0 anisotropic_filtering=0 gamma=50.000000 }

I promise you it does. Assuming you are on a PC go to MyDocuments, Paradox, CK2 - right there.

I am having the same problem as you Werwolf. (3 years later lol).
I have gone into the settings file for previous games that have done this and have fixed the problem.
I can not find the settings file for this game however. to the two who didn't believe that he couldn't find it. Neither can I lol.

The settings file is not in your main Steam directory. It is in your main document folder. Documents > Paradox Interactive > Crusader Kings II > settings.txt

If you change the X and Y in the settings file and it keeps resetting to the old value when you restart the game, do the following:

Locate the game application in your main Steam folder on your computer. Usually SteamLibrary > Steam Apps > common > Crusader Kings II and right click on the file called CK2game. Select Properties and then the Compatibility tab and then in settings choose "Disable scaling on high DPI settings", make sure it is checked and then hit Okay. That should keep the game from going back to the old values when you change them in the settings file.

Okay thanks, I appreciate it. Didn't think of going in the other files.
